Chariamonti Julius Caesar

100 Oz of Silver

Dimensions: 13" Height | Width 7" | Depth 9"

edition of 99

The prototype from which this sculpture was made is a precise casting derived from the mold of the original marble Julius Caesar Bust. The authenticity of this casting carries the Publisher Seal, Licensor Seal and the edition number.

This is an important sculpture from the Vatican's Chiaramonti Museum collection. It is the most highly regarded of only two surviving portraits of Caesar that were likely to have been commissioned during his lifetime. Historians have speculated that the Chiaramonti Caesar bust was commissioned by Caesar himself. Caesar's remarkable life was ended in 44 B.C. on the Ides of March.

Created utilizing the "lost wax" casting technique, a method believed to be over 5,000 years old, this artwork continues an artisan tradition almost as old as civilization itself. The work includes the original carrying case and all the original paperwork. The creation of this casting was deemed significant enough that it was covered by the NYTimes Arts in America.

Item is in pristine condition and measures 15” x 11” x 13”

This item comes with both a Certificate of Authenticity and the Original Paperwork from the Vatican.
